The scheme has been very successful and has received some excellent feedback from both clients and the volunteers who help us.
Rushcliffe Befriends is a peer supported scheme so if you are over 50, live in Rushcliffe and have a few hours a week to spare, we‘d love to hear from you. We are looking for people who are good listeners, reliable, non-judgmental and like meeting people. In return we provide out of pocket expenses, offer on-going support and organise quarterly volunteer meetings and social events.
